Sorry fellow anti-Trumpians.  He just did absolutely the right thing.  Banning travel to the Shengen zone is desperately needed.  In his shoes I would have done the same.

There are corners of this move I could pick apart, but that goes for every decision by every politician, living, dead and probably not born yet.

Well Done Trump!

I think that it was a bold move.  Maybe too late, given how the SARS-Cov2 virus is spreading in the USA, but a good move.

But he had to spoil it a bit by playing down the seriousness.

BUT overall a good move.  

 Like the Chinese the actions seem to indicate more going on than the words do.

He’s still falling short of declaring a full emergency, but hopefully the things he is doing will slow the spread and ease the burden on the healthcare system.


Just not sure about the “again” part

He also shut up when Iran backed off a couple of months back.  I know a score of 2/several hundred is not high, but credit when it's due.

I still think it was 100% scripted by staffers and not even close to the way he views the situation, but I’m just glad that he’s finally listening to people who are better qualified.
